Nigerian long jumper, Ese Brume, has said she would be targeting a gold medal in her next competition.

Brume produced her biggest jump of the year in Oregon, USA to become the first Nigerian athlete to win medals at two World Athletics Championships.

She won the silver medal in Oregon, an upgrade to the bronze she won in Doha in 2019.

The Olympic bronze medalist leaped 7.02m and finished behind Germany’s Olympic champion Malaika Mihambo, who leaped 7.12m, and Brazil’s Leticia Oro Melo jumped 6.89m to take bronze.
